WHY CALLED "HOOP-POLE"
lt is an erroneous conception on the part
of most people that the term "Hoop-pole
County" was given this locality because of '
the hoop-poles grown here. In the early
days Mt. Vernon was a very important
river port. Flatboats dotted the river from
New Orleans to Pittsburg. Products of
every description were transported on
these crafts, the most common being lum-
ber. For some unaccountable reason, prob-
ably because of its shipping location, Mt.
Vernon became the noted center for cooper
shops. Common belief has it that hoop-
poles themselves were grown in great
abundance in this county. Instead they
were shipped here from regions farther
south to be made into barrels. This coop- THE COLISEUM
ering industry flourished about seventy
The common custom upon both the Ohio and Mississippi rivers in those days
was for all boats passing to hail each other and to find out the other's business.
People along the shore would so hail the passing boats. Whenever a ilatboat bound
for or away from Posey County hailed, this conversation followed:
"Where ye from"?
"Hoop-pole County, Indeeanief'
"Whatche got on board ?"
"Hoop-poles and dried punkins."
MAIN ST.-BEFORE THE OAKLAND CITY GAME
n ' W fig.. ll
This became so common that "I-Ioop-pole
County, Indeeanieu was known everywhere in
the United States. In the midst of this period of
coopering prosperity occurred a fight between
the coopers of Mt. Vernon and a low class of
river men landing at this port. It was a com-
mon event for these rufiians to go into the town
and to tear things up in general. The peaceful
citizens, tired of this "bullying" element of peo-
ple, united to drive them out. Armed with hoop-
poles and barrel staves they encountered the riv-
ermen and a battle royal ensued. The boatmen
were finally beaten and in great haste they em-
barked and went down the river. They pre-
sented a sorry looking aspect and upon inquiry
as to their plighted condition they would reply
that "they are a rough set at Mt. Vernon."
Unfortunately the fame of this episode has spread with the fame of the hoop-
poles. "Hoop-pole" is now used with respect and tribute, rather than with shame.

M. V. H. S.---OUR IDEAL
Mt. Veruon's various high schools have
followed the course or nature, at first like
the creeping worm, then the gay butterfly.
since Mt. Vernon has been large enough
to have a secondary education system,
more have been four high schools. Each
has been bigger and better than the pre-
ceding one, The iirst Mt. Vernon high
school was erected in 1870, at the site
where Central Building now stands ....
And was affectionately called "Old Cen-
tral '. Rather plain in appearance-a di-
mlnutive building when thought of in the
terms of today, one with classes in few
subjects and taught by a. small faculty
. . . this was the sum total of the activi-
UOLD CENTRALVY ties of the time. There was no frenzied
shouting at athletic contests, there was no
school paper, no annual, no social organi-
zation, ostensibly at least, with their various pursuits. Although in these quiet
stages the "spirit of M. V. H. S." was operating. An old grad says "Plus poetic
quam humane locutus es"- perhaps we "have spoken more poetically than hu-
manly", but it has been very little exaggerated on our part.
But as with other things, "Old Central" outlived its usefulness. The Senior
classes no longer consisted of only live to twelve students-so a new building took
its place. This structure was the Main Street school. However it did not supply
the needs long, as it was not much larger than its predecessor. It served from
1887 to 1896. Then came the third high school. This was heralded as one of the
best in the state at the time of its dedication-it was to the city what the present
High is. Erected at a cost of 517,000 at the corner of College Avenue and Fifth
Street, it presented an imposing view . . . "gingerbread" it was said. Built in
Gothic style, with its towers, turrets, and arched portals-it well deserved the ten-
der, loving epithet of the "Old Castle".

"THE NEW CASTLE"
It had one large auditorium and nine
class rooms--and with the larger build-
ing came sports and a few organizations
of the 90's . . . the fin de siecle . . .
passed trom the calendar. From the
first the spirit of M. V. H. S. had been
apparent. Now it began to blossom-it
began to enter into the life of the M. V.
H. S. student. More than book learn-
ing he carried away now when he grad-
uated: he was in an atmosphere of com-
radeship, of being someone.
The "Old Castle" was a long time in
passing into the limbo of undesirables
-but finally the State Board of Educa-
tion determined that it no longer could
satisfy the needs of the twentieth cen-
tury . . . so plans were begun to re-
place the building that the students had , -
cared for so long. The Mt. Vernon MAIN1.I?ERSIg3Ff:IlJ1SgHP??L
school board eschewed anything that
would not be the best in the educational world. But we will not here go into de-
tail ot the midnight oil they burned planning its type, its equipment, the means
of financing it. Let it sufiice to say that money was not copious, but the Board in
its masterly way finally got the building under way, and the impressive "New
Castle" of Tudor-Gothic design is the result. This article was not written to pass
ecomiums on the city, or to give a eulogy of the school board-but the Hoop-Pole
ot' this year cannot ignore the mighty spirit with which M. V. H. S. has been en-
dowed. Although the present high school system has at times been discussed with
asperity, there can be no doubt that the recitation system where the students can
clarify their notions by filtration through the minds of others, their comradeships
with each other, that the high school of today is a permanent quality.
As has been said the Hoop-Pole of '29 can not ignore the "spirit of M. V. H.
S." In order to appreciate this spirit it is necessary to understand what it really
is . . . what is it? Is it that which impels a wild-eyed student body to scream,

"Win the county tourney"? In a way, this
is but the ebullitiong however, somewhat
small .... The true "spirit of M. V. H.
S." is that which causes the students and
graduates of the "Castles" to be true to
themselves and true members of society in
which they are placed. Soldier, statesman,
scientist, it matters not . . . the part is a
minor thingg each is an old "grad". M. V.
H. S. does not consist of stone buildings,
but of the students which constitute the
school. M. V. H. Sis spirit is eternal! Long
after the present buildings have crumbled
away, and the children of the students of
today have passed into history the "spirit
of M. V. H. will survive. The school
that taught-"It matters not whether we
win or lose, but how we play the game"-
its spirit must be great. It is altogether
fitting and right that the Hoop-Pole of '29
embody as its ideal-"The Spirit of M. V.

M. N. O'BANNON
The success of an institution rests largely upon the shoulders of the superin-
tendent. In his power is intrusted the fulfillment of our dreams of a bigger, bet-
ter school. In writing of Mr. O'Bannon, one almost has to lapse into a panegyr-
ic. . .Mr. O'Bannon, indeed, has labored untiringly to develop the Mount Vernon
High School and to bring it to its present status. The new High School is a flttlng
memento of the work for which he will be always remembered. Without inspira-
tion, nothing could be accomplishedg all the world would be drab. But above the
horizon of our lives comes the inspiration, the hope, and the faith of one who
keeps himself in the mind of every M. V. I-I. S. student as one who is ever working
for our good-it is our loving superintendent, Mr. O'Bannon.

Now a baron-in fact an "Earl"-ruled
at the "Old Castle" in 1926. He had not
ruled very long, but already he had many
meek subjects. But suddenly there came
to his ears the distant rumble of conflict
from Junior High land. A horde of bar-
barians, the like of which had never been
seen before were being let loose from the
hill and were descending upon the school.
The "class of '29" it was said in whispers. But Earl was crafty and made ready for
the invasion. The van guard hit the castle that December, but Earl wished to con-
quer all so he did not mete out punishments to them . . . but
1. In the mighty month of September--Everett Alldredge's birth month-
Earl, the baron, saw a Vast horde of 110 descending upon him--a great event.
2. And the heavens were dark, and the thunder thundered, and the rain
fell even in bucketfuls on that day.
3. And Earl did name them Freshmen, to be so called by all men-and he
placed them under many other rulers, called teachers.
4. Now Earl, the baron, was taxed to his utmost in subduing the barbarians
. . . and he cried out grievously.
5. And he lifted up his eyes and saw George Ashworth, Christopher Wilder-
man, Robert Green, and others equally as great: would it not make anyone trem-
6. All the boys did take Biology and they waxed strong in wisdom-Edwin
Hartmann did split the tongue of a crow, hearing that the beautiful bird would
then speak in the tongue of a human.
7. And verily I say unto you, all the students did then jeer and nod their
heads significantly at the Wonderful One.
8. Whereupon Edwin did become wroth and eloquent, and did so revile
Charles Hornick that Charles has nevergrown in stature since.
9. And then whereupon Norman Knoop,
a friend of Charles', did smite Edwin on
the organ of smell, causing it to change
10. For which Norman was presented
with many branches of the oak tree S 13
fwhereof I shall not speakj which abound- ' f lp
ed so in the land. ,,, W

1. Now they were no longer called I
Freshmen, but rather Sophomores. l K N
2. And in English, there was a Teacher -Jig 'I
who still doth teach, so I will not explain '1 jr- if
her name. 12 1,
3. Verily I say unto you, she did so like Tigre.--Q-4T'g'E,,
the work of Donald Flesher, Bertha Gra-
hert, and Jolm H. Leffel that she did make
them rewrite their themes so she might
again enjoy correcting them.

' 4. Whereat the class did appreciate the
humor of the situation, and were amused.
A., 9 9 5. And in Latin there was another
' Teacher--Whereas Shamgar slew hundreds
rg with an ox-goad she slew thousands with
5 her sarcasm.
6. But one day John Robert Moeller,
I, called "Logic" by all men, perpetrated a.
X witticism which excited the risibility of
that Marvelous One.
7. Her tongue became dreadful, even
as the color of blood-and she began fire
S. To reprint her words here would
cause instantaneous combustion, so I will
9. One look, nay fiery glance from her
brunette eyes, and the rash "Logic" did
fall writhing in anguish.
10. And all this came to pass while they were Sophomores.
1. Now after they were Sophomores, they were Juniors.
2. And their bright and shining light will always be held up before the other
Juniors and their children forever and ever . . . and while Juniors Algebra III
3. And in Algebra they had a Teacher.
4. Now this Teacher looked with favor upon Ella Whipple, Lenora. Hockman,
Mary Alexander, Aaron Robb, and Alfred Wallace.
5. For she spake unto them and said, "Behold, I have received from you no
problems which have been solved inaccurately . . . And, verily I say unto you,
that I have not received any which have been solved accurately."
6. And great was the wonder thereat and the favored ones did reason among
themselves, saying, "How can this be true?"
7. But as all may see, it can easily be true.
8. For some did not take Algebra III.
1. And now SENIORS they were called far and wide!
2. And as SENIORS they were dignity personified . . . they did take Eco-
nomics . . . and study "Bill" Shakespeare.
3. In Economics there were many debates.
4. Genella Dawson and Pansy Utley did oppose Anna Russell and Catherine
Williams one day in spirited appeals therein.
5. So James Short was made judge.
6. While they were debating, Pansy
did look kindly upon him who was to
decide the fate of them all. -
7. Whereupon James did speak, .
"Those optics get my 'goat'. I have '
heart trouble." 1
8. Pansy's side did win.
9. And Ruth Regina Hall, common-
ly known as "Small" did faint.
10. But now the SENIORS approach-
the end of their careers.
11. Teachers weep.
12. The tears, however, are tears of
. So we pass away.
14. Now may the grace of the SEN-
IORS and the example of their diligence
be before you, O Juniors. Sophomores,
and Freshmen, now and forever. Amen

Dlvides Orchestra .
Fast upon the School
Board's announcement that
dancing would be permitted
and with it the inevitable
necking-came like a thun-
derbolt out of a clear sky,
the words of Mr. Edward
Alton Pence, professor of
Hygiene and Nursing at Mt.
Vernon High, that due to
the continual writing of
mushy love notes between
the two sexes, and also be-
cause of the necklng that
goes on the minute the di-
rector's back is turned, he
found it necessary to have
two orchestras, one for the
girls and one for the boys.
The girls objected, but
the boys seem willing. So the
boy's orchestra will advance
in its career without the as-
sistance of the girls for
their necklng either.J
The boys plan as the first
program "Mama, Mama, Pin
a Rose on Me"--"Peter,
Peter, Pumpkin Eater"-
"You Chase Me, and I'll
Chase You"-and "Rocka-
This came as a. surprise,
because last week the School
Board decided that dancing
would be permlssable--not
only that, but even compul-
sory. At the present time,
the Board is somewhat irate
because at the first school
dance only eighty-nine per
cent of the school was pres-
ent. So this week a course in
"Dancing" has been put in
the school curriculum, hav-
ing as its teacher, Miss Mil-
dred Bradley and the best
boy dancer in the school,

This announcement came
as the result of several trag-
ical episodes. Malcolm Abell,
noted High School scholar,
made a final fatal attempt to
prepare for a test assign-
ment last week. But our
much-beloved and now be-
mourned friend never took
the test, for he broke his

Hardly having strength
enough to straighten his tin
ear Mr. Nash's last words
were: "Never will I again
burden my students with

probably true, because a mo-

that they did not care for
them. At last the Board
seems successful, and for
next week's dance they have
secured the hot "Faculty"

FLINN SAYS KNIFE NEVER
LOVED HIM3 "NO DATES"
Detecting a powerful sul-
phuric acid solution in his
coffee this morning, Floyd
Flinn has left home-and
now resides in the basement
of the house. "Life is intol-
erable"! he said in a state-
ment to the press this morn-
Cruelty, non-support, and
the extravagance of Mrs.
Mary Alice Flinn, well-
known student at Evansville
College, were reasons given
by Floyd Flinn, devoted
spouse, for their separation
in the famous suit now be-
fore the court.
The couple were married
in December, 1928. Accord-
ing to Mr. Flinn the tlrst
rift in their marital life oc-
curred when Mrs. Flinn re-
fused his request that his
allowance be raised to flfty
cents a. week. But Mrs. Flinn
says "This was impossible
and Floydie knows it" . . .
"I have been diligently sav-
ing all winter to buy me a
new fur coat, and to think
he would broach such a sub-
ject . . . Why, I should be
the one to object"!
"Had I k n o w n Mrs.
Flinn's true character be-
fore our marriage, I never
would have taken the fatal
step. She treated me cruelly,
often refusing to let me have
dates with Miss Catherine
Howard and Miss Miriam
Wilson--two girl friends,"
said Mr. Flinn with a catch
in his voice.
Residents in the vicinity
of the Flinn household re-
port often hearing violent
quarrels at all times of the

PROF. SMOOT'S BED-
TIME STORY FOR Tl-IE
KIDDIES AND MORONS
Prof. Smoot was in the
World War . . . and the
Prof. was so thoroughly
worn out by the War that
he has become childish, and
in this stage of second child-
hood has taken up the vile
but harmless habit of telling
bed-time stories. Read on
Cif you can stand ity
The Ugly Princess
Once upon a time there
was a princess named Mag-
gie. Maggie was a very good
princess, and she had never
told a lie nor smoked a cig-
arette, so nobody liked her
At the time Maggie was
very ugly. She had beauti-
ful hats, but her face was
like an unfolded nightmare.
She wore satin slippers, but
her foot left tracks like a.
land grant railroad.
However, Maggie had a.
pure, white heart, with a.
wonderful white cardiac ori-
fice and white corpuscles.
She helped her mother with
the dishes, she knew how to
sew, she was always gay and
polite to her old father, and
when she sang, she sounded
like a battery of Field Artil-
Now the King, Maggie's
father of course was no-
body's fool: and while he
loved his daughter as only a.
father could, still he began
to worry when she passed
her thirtieth birthday with-
out a suitor. So he read up
the Training Regulations on
how to get rid of daughters
in two counts. The first prob-
lem was to find the two
The Regulations stated
that the way to do was to
have a contestg to have a
tourney or announce open
season on a wild boar, and
to award, as prize for the
winner, his daughter's hand.
Now it came to pass about
this time that a scaly dragon
was on maneuvers about the
neighborhood. This dragon
had scales enough to weigh
a ton tractor, and he breath-
ed fire through his mouth
and smoke through his nose:
furthermore he was on a.

diet of children and fair
maidens for dinner. Married
women roamed about in
comparative security, and
the dragon passed them up
like cold potatoes. Here,
thought the King, was a
noble opportunity, to im-
prove living conditions for
fair maidens, and at the
same time to marry his most
unhandsome daughter and a
decree, not to mention an
edict and an ofllcial manifes-
to that whosoever should
kill that dragon, dead or
alive, should have his daugh-
ter's hand and all the rest of
her for that matter. He pub-
lished this edict in flve par-
agraphs, and broadcasted it
No sooner had the news
been spread than all the
men threw a w ay their
spears. The Dragon walked
around town and picked out
the tenderest maidens that
he could find. at will, he
had them boiled, stewed, and
on the half shell. All the
bachelors in the kingdom
grew very fond of the Drag-
on. called him by his pet
name "Al", and helped him
scout around for good. Then
to cap the climax, Princess
Maggie went out one day and
slew the dragon. This was on
her thirty-first birthday, and
it nearly killed her poor old
After a week of mourning,
the King called together his
counsellors and elders and
spoke to them in this wise,
"Hear, O ye elders, and
hearken, ye counsellors"
how can we inveile some-
one in t o marrying this
daughter? The elders admit-
ted they were stumped, and
the counsellors could not
find an approved solution.
Finally the King thought of
a happy scheme, he wrote a
check for one million and no
hundredths dollars, placed
it on his daughter's back
with four thumb tacks, and
declared that any man brave
enough to fill his name in
the check should marry the
It worked like magic, and
when the Princess took her
morning walk all the noble-
men lined up behind her,
like a snake dance after the
Navy game. Some had indel-
ible pencils, some had foun-
tain pens, some had rubber
stamps, and half a dozen
carried portable typewriters,
by noon the Princess looked
like a city directory: the
check was one big blot of
ink, there were names on the
check, on her shirt-waist,
and on her petticoat. The
line stretched for miles and
she had not even passed
through the Genesis yet.
Such popularity, thought her
father, must be deserved
By sundown, the Princess
was weak. Furthermore she
had been stabbed by so many
fountain pens that she con-
tracted blood poisoning, and
was about to die. To save
her from this sad fate, be-
cause she was so pure and
good, a kind fairy came
along and changed her into
a double eagle. And the
double eagle used to sit in
the palace window all day
long and sing two songs at
once. So the old King was
very happy, and wondered
why he hadn't thought of lt

. a T. VERNON HIGH SCH,OOL'S ORCHESTRA under the direc-
sr tion of Miss Helen Bruner, has had a very successful year.
x The orchestra participated in many of the school activi-
ties. It rendered several beautiful yet difficult selections
Dedication Day and during the performance of the Footlight
Performers. The operetta, "The Pirate's Daughter," was un-
usually well rendered due to the splendid accompaniment of the orchestra. At
the Baccalaureate Services and Commencement Exercises the orchestra again dis-
tinguished itself. '
During the year several members were asked to play in the All Sectional
Orchestra of Evansville. This is the first time in the history that such an honor
was awarded to any of its members.
Several members of the orchestra will graduate this year, but their vacancies
will be iilled by members from the Junior Orchestra.

T. VERNON HIGH SCHOOL has one of the best bands in
3? Southern Indiana. Only a few of the mainstays from the old
5, band were left from last year. At present the band is com-
posed chiefly of underclassmen and under the very able super-
vision of Mr. Dragoo of Princeton, they have developed stu-
pendously during the past year. It is not an easy task to de-
velop rhythm and harmony in an organization of this kind but Mr. Dragoo has
done so very well. Many of the boys still take private lessons.
The Band has played for basketball games and as a climax to their work of
the year, they were very outstanding at the County Tournament held in the new
gym. With the combining of the schools they were provided with better facilities
with which to work.
Shall we give three cheers for the present Band and all future Bands?

Choruses: Guests, Villagers, Pirates and Police
' Story of the Operetta
A house party is given by Mr. and Mrs. Van der Meer at their estate on the
Hudson. A necromancer from India is engaged to put the guests to sleep. They
wish to dream themselves back in Old Holland three hundred years before. The
necromancer casts his spell, putting them to sleep.
Act II opens with the same characters, transferred to Leydenkirk, Holland,
in the year 1624. It is built around the character of Jacqueline, a dashing and
flirtatious girl. One day after a storm she was found unconscious on the beach
by the Burgomaster, and taken into his home. Comic and dramatic situations fol-
low each other rapidly during two scenes. 'Phe first scene opens with the birth-
day celebration in honor of the Burgomaster. A sailor, Schmidt, warns the Burgo-
master and Peter, Prefect of Police, that a brigantine which anchored in the har-
bor the night before, is a pirate ship, believed to be commanded by the notorious
Captain La Rue, Pirate Chief. The Burgomaster and Peter plan a clever trap for
the pirates. Jaqueline and Willberg assist the pirates, who break into the Burgo-
master's house, carrying off the chest supposed to contain the town funds in gold.
At the pirates' rendezvous, Scene 2, the pirates open the chest and find the
Burgomaster inside. Police arrive, overcome the pirates, Jaqueline is found to be
the Pirate Chief's Daughterg and on condition that they will never set foot on
Dutch soil again, they are set free. .

. UCH OF THE PEP at the athletic contests was furnished
X by the High School Drum Corps. Although only two years in
existence it gained recognition as one of the best in the tri-
tate. Miss Miriam Wilson was the corps sponsor and much
of its success is due to her. Marian Powell Was the peppy
little drum major with the strut. The drum corps had prac-
tically the same personnel as it did have last year, so all the members were ex-
perienced. All will be back next year, which denotes that an even better drum
corps is in the making. M. V. H. S. is truly proud of its drum corps!

THE HI-Y CLUB is one of the finest organizations of the school with its purpose
of maintaining and spreading clean speech, clean athletics, clean living, and
clean scholarship. Under the sponsorship of Mr. Pence, Athletic Coac11, and its
president, Charles Hornick, it has ma.de excellent progress although it has been
compelled to make new by-laws, and amend the constitution because of the disap-
pearance of the other one.
It showed its support to the football team by the famous Pow-Wow which
took place at the Athletic Field on the night before the first home game. The real
work of the Hi-Y, however, was not of this type-molding characters was its cri-
terion, and from this the school deserves greatest benefit.
The membership was increased by tive and these added a great deal to the
usefulness of the club.

ley served as faculty advisor.
To the Business Managers this year goes a great' deal of credit. This ofiice is
a very diflicult one to till and not every one can take charge of it as it should be
done. Yet "Reg" and her assist-
ants this year secured more money
through the business department
than has ever been secured before.
This enabled the staff to do sev-
eral things that had heretofore
been impossible. Also a great deal
of credit belongs to Miss Bradley
. . . she knew the technical side
of the question and when the staff
was slacking in the work done,
she was always there to see that
things came off smoothly.

The class of '29 naturally thinks the 1929 HOOP- 1
POLE the "best ever". Realizing that the high
school annual should he a true reflection, they have
tried to put more of the high school life into its
contents. For the first time a central theme was
run through the book. For this the ship-a mod-
ern liner was chosen. For the first time a theme
was put into the snap pages. Likewise in the ath-
letic section. All in all, the staff has tried to pre-
sent to the school, a book of which M. V. H. S.
might be proud.

THE HOOP-POLE JR.
TORIALLY SPEAKING, one of the most important
activities of a school is its paper. All schools do not
have papers but a large percentage do. Mt. Vernon
- - High School is 0116 that does.
The Hoop-Pole Junior was started in the year 1919 by a Journalism Class and
has been published ever since. It is the only school paper in Posey County, and
M. V. H. S. should be proud that it has one.
The paper of any school works to create and maintain a better school spirit
and to hold high the ideals of the school it represents. The Hoop-Pole Jr. is work-
ing toward these two aims in Mt. Vernon High School, just as the motto says,
"All for the honor and glory of the school."
The paper acts as a medium of exchange. By sending the Hoop-Pole Jr. to
several different schools, a number of papers are received in turn. By reading
these papers it is possible to exchange ideas with the other schools and see What
they are doing about certain situations. '
The paper is perhaps the most widely known activity of the school. During
the school year which has just come to a close, exchange papers were sent to high
schools in Indiana., Illinois, and Kentucky, and by way of outside subscriptions,
the Hoop-Pole Jr. reached Ohio, and Michigan. Thus the Hoop-Pole Jr. reached
live states during the last yearg spreading the news ot M. V. H. S., the athletic
teams, and other activities with it as it went.
Dedicated to high school betterment with the motto-"All for the honor and
glory of the school."
The experience that one gets by working n the Hoop-Pole Jr. stat proves
helpful in later years if one is interested in jo, rnalistlc work. By working on the
school paper one gets all the preliminary fundamentals of making up a newspaper.
One of the former editors of the Hoop-Pole Jr. who went to Indiana University
became editor of "The Indiana Daily Student" in his senior year. Although the
experience he gained as editor of the Hoop-Pole Jr. was not wholly responsible
for this, it helped.
Thus one may see that a school paper is a wonderful thing for a school to
possess, and that M. V. H. S. is proud of its paper, the Hoop-Pole Jr.

'UMOR IN THAT IT was the tragedy of William Sylvanus
Baxter, that he has ceased to be sixteen and was not yet
eighteen, was the theme of the Class Play of '29-"Seven-
teen". Baby, child, boy, youth and grown-up are deinite
phenomena. The world knows them and has learned to
put up with them. Seventeen is not an age, it is a. dis-
ease. In its turbulent bosom, the leavings of a. boy are at war with the beginnings
of a man.

SYNOPSIS OF "SEVEN'l'EEN"
ln his heart, William Sylvanus Baxter knows all the tortures and delights of
loveg he is capable of any of the heroisms of his heroic sex. But l1e is still sent on
the most humiliating errands by his mother, and depends upon his father for the
last nickel of spending money.
Silly Bill fell in love with Lola the Baby-Talk Lady, a vapid if amiable little
flirt. To woo her in a manner worthy of himself fand incidentally of herj he
stole his fatl1er's evening clothes. When his wooings became a nuisance to the
neighborhood, his mother stole the clothes back, and had them altered to lit the
middle-aged form of her husband, thereby keeping William at h0lll6 in the evening.
But when it came to the Baby-Talk Lady's good-bye dance, not to be present
was unendurable. How William Sylvanus again got the dress suit, and how as he
was wearing it at the party the negro servant, Genesis, disclosed the fact that the
proud garment was in reality his fathers, are some of the elements in this charm-
ing comedy of youth.
Jane Baxter, little sister of Seventeen, could not leave his affairs alone and
contributed much to the humor. The Parchers-victim's of Lolafs visit, had to
contend with Willie, Johnnie, George, and Wallie, all afflicted with love-mania..

THE DEBATING TEAMS, this year sponsored by Miss Howard as in previous
years, and with the help of Mr. Page, was not successful in that they lost every
debate. From the standpoint of training and culture, however, it may be said that
the debating season was a. success.
The Negative team, composed of Anna Russell, Otis Allyn, and Charles Hor-
nick, lost decisions to Reitz and Central High school of Evansville.
The Atlirmative team, composed of Genella Dawson, Richard Caldemeyer, and
Everett Alldredge lost to Princeton High School and to Bosse of Evansville,
The four members who are being lost to their teams

, J L most important and useful of the extra curricular activi-
1 . '-3 Inf, ties of their high school career.

RAMATICS had its place in the school through the Footlight Per-
formers, the most active of the clubs. With a membership
.of twenty-five, later thirty-live, it presented to the public
some six one-act plays which were well received. Miss Catherine
Howard was the club sponsor, and she was the guiding light in
this, the club's first year of existence. The clnb's greatest con-
tribution was the purchase of the beautiful velour curtains for the windows of the
auditorium and stage flood-lights. Plays given by the club were "The Maker of
Dreams", casting Ella Whipple, Everett Alldredge, and Charles Hornickg "The

For Eddie Pence's men who light-
Give them the power to win tonightg
This is my wish.
AFM the M. V. H. S. Maroon and White,
May M. V. H. S. win forever-n
And yet have this story the same:
Mount Vernon's men
In the struggle to win
Stick to the rules of the game!
,-, .-,. .
M. V. H. S. pits its coaches against
the world. Mt. Vernon's coaches have
' crashed through. This is not a eulogy
. . .for athletics at M. V. H. S. was on
a higher plane this season than last.
Next year will see still better. Why?
The coaches-fPENCE. . ."Eddie", our
diminutive mentor, is one of the most
popular that M. V. H. S. has ever had.
lndiana Central star in football, bas-
ketball, baseball and track, he came to
Mt. Vernon in '27. This is the third
year he has been here-and each year
has shown an improvement in the type
of athletics sent out by the Maroon and
White. Good-natured, a builder of men,
he well deserves the school's and com-
COACH ALLGOOD munity's support. Pence, with charac-
teristic views on how to play football,
last season developed a strong pigskin
aggregation, which while it lost most of its games, were by one touchdown
margins rather than the six or seven of several former lean years. Next year,
"Eddie" will reap the work on this year's team. In basketball, with. only one or
two vets, Pence took a few juniors and several sophomores and turned out a iight-
ing crew .... Little wonder that M. V. H. S. is proud of its athleti'c coach-
ALLGOOD--The girls' mentor's chief hobby is in producing championship
teams. That he has a hobby in which he has done something can be seen by the
teams of '25, '26, '28 and now this year, '29. A coach's real personality comes out
in defeat. For years Mt. Vernon has been supreme in the realm of girls' basket-
ball. It was easy for Coach Allgood to be praised, to praise. This year Mt. Vernon
again had a good team, but a probable perfect record was ruined by injuries to
the players necessitating the building of different combinations at times. . .
through this Allgood came out with his same geniality-just ask the girls. A1-
though the team this year was almost all seniors, leaving little nucleus for him
with which to build-M. V. H. S. faces the future with optimism .... Trusting
Allgood to again come through.
THE ascendency of football at M. V. H. S. this year was sharp-
ly outlined against the sombre background in that many
of these should have resulted in a win, another in a tie,
credence to statements that they "feared the Mountaineers". I
But last year five games were scheduled-hard ones l N
against tough foes. Four of these resulted in defeats. One
of these should have have resulted in a win, another in a tie
. . . but breaks went the opposite way. So their record can- ' 5
not show that. my
Nor can the scorebook tell of their iight. Mt. Vernon's -
..f?.j - XX
teams have never betrayed their fighting tradition. Beaten
V' 'i in previous years-yes, even buried under large scores, this
af' season they tried hard to emerge from the mire . . . the rut.
But the rut was deep-nearly six feet-so deep that it became
E " 'J a grave. In spite of this a great schedule was arranged. Bosse
.5 5 collected its reeling senses long enough to get a victory from
argl the Pencemeng Boonville came from behind to win with a
's i trick play by a close marging Cakland City was trampled un-
L der in the only home game after a rousing "Pow-wow" the
night beforeg over-confidant, M. V. H. S. lost to an inferior
Reitz teamg a fast Memorial team was nearly tied on a muddy field in what was
one of the grittiest battles ever put up by a Mountaineer team.
This is their record . . . and the school is proud of it. Dependability as
well as versatility characterized their play all season--so Mt. Vernon looks for-
ward to the '29 season next fall with a smile, well knowing the breaks do not al-
ways go the other way.
AMONG THE LYRICS sung by sport-writers at M. V. H. is one to the boys'
basketball team. Its lines are inscribed in the wild accents of a hopeful peo-
ple longing for a savior from the tyranny of the other tri-state teams .... The
Pencemen this year were "jewels" in the making.
Of the games played this year only four were won-but that does not tell
how at the start of the season Coach Pence was faced with the loss of his captain:
having as veterans upon whom he could rely only one. But painstakingly "Eddie"
culled the subs of last year, looked over the sophomores and found three of var-
sity calibre-and from these he molded the five that represented the Maroon and
White on the court. Naturally they did
not win many games . . but their old
teacher, experience, was operating.
Coach Pence uncovered his satellites one
at a time it seemed. When he looked
at the basketball situation last fall he
found it wanting. He had Ashworth,
And-Leffel had played a little. Then
he found Kahn. But ineligibility forced
him out. Finally Abell, former Junior
High star came out, and at once seized
a forward position. At last Knoop
found himself on the court and then the
score-keepers were busy marking down
points for him. At the same time Scha-
fer, also former J. H. S. star with Fes-
senden and Bishop began finding the
basket was not so hard to hit . . . but
alas the season was over. However this
cloud did have a silver lining . . all COACH FENCE
will be back next year but three.
ALL SENIORS--that was the Redbird sextette at the start of -
of the season, and all of them were "old timers". What
could be better? The Redbirds started off like state champs. The
list of victories began mounting. Then like a flash of lightning
out of a clear sky came trouble . . no, troubles. First, Hovey,
leading scorer and oiiensive mainstay at the time was lost to the
squad because of eye trouble. Hocknian, her running mate, took
over the scoring duties and Blackburn was moved to her post.
T'hen Blackburn hurt her knee and for fear of increasingithe in-
jury also left the team. Keck, inexperienced, was then moved up
to the forward berth.
But to climax the affair, Hockman also had her knee in-
jured. The Redbird was a sick looking "bird" . . . Blackburn
was called back to the team, and made a game stand of itf But the troubles had
been great and the win column had as a result to surfer. So it is with pride that
Mt. Vernon points to the season's record and there see only four losses. The girls
did play great ball. They did fight. King, Esche, and Aud proved a guard tri-
umvirate that brought fear into more than one opponent. Capt. Williams at the
center position was always a bulwark of defense and offense.
So Allgood and the Redbirds of '28-'29 do indeed deserve the praise and hon-
ors bestowed upon them by the school and community! . . . What about next
year. Perhaps it was not such a great calamity in a way to have the offensive
drive of the team disrupted as it was, for out of it Allgood found two reliable for-
wards in Keck and Blackburn. Allgood has always been at his best in developing
guards . . . so Mt. Vernon will look forward next fall, not with trepidation, but
with optimism .... Hail, Redbirds!

For once M. V. H. S. had no
school elected yell leader. For
some reason never determined,
that phase of the athletics was
never up to par. However, Everett
Alldredge, cheerleader for the Hi-
Y, took over the post at times, and
did what little was done. He pre-
sided at pep sessions and at the
Pow-Wow. John Ofer served as an
assistant, being the "Fighting
Forty" yell leader.
NOT SINCE 1926 has Mt. Vernon High been represented on the diamond. When
Charles Hames was secured as Social Science instructor, Supt. 0'Bannon also
secured a devoted fan and player of the "national pastime". A sport in the year
of its inception usually does not do very well, yet for one to say that baseball at
M. V. H. S. has not done very excellent-
ly would show that that person did not
know the true condition. When the call
was made for candidates for the 'var-
sity, only sixteen or seventeen answered
--yet from these a strong nine was ob-
tained. "Sandlot" ball had contributed
a great deal to Haines in forming the
team, so he took advantage of it and
formed a truly formidable team. Most
of the county schools also had teams,
so it was not necessary for Mt. Vernon
to play the larger Evansville schools,
but rather play in its class. The result
was in Mt. Vernon's favor in wins and
losses. Mt. Vernon had three hurlers in
Ashworth, Wallace, and Oliver: a good
catcher in Abell: an excellent infield
composed of Wilderman, Cleveland, Floyd, and Redman. As outfiielders, Temple-
ton, Oliver, Hix, Leffel, Weir, Hames and Peerman, Bishop, Johnson, Hendricks,
Henderson, W. Causey, H. Curtis as utility . . . and practically all will be back!

CAPT. ASHWORTH . . .
Ends: REDMAN . . . "Jack" was
human lightning+with this exceptiong
he hit more than once in the same place,
and it was right around the knees!
XVILDERMAN . . . red headed, he
al ways put up a lively sc1'ap. He, as a
wingman, could sure tackle and snag
WALLACE . . . Another red-h e a d
was "Josh". Although his first year in
the game he saw much action and ac-
quitted himself by real playing.
PEERMAN . . . "Slufoot" was an-
other one of those pass grabbers. He
was a deadly tackler, fast and shiftv.
AUD . . . "Cotton" was better known to the hardwood fans. But he could
hit the interference! Fans Won't forget the Memorial game!
Tackles: GIVENS . . . "Tommy" is a veritable juggernut. Big, husky, and
consistent in getting down the field after punts.
ROACH . . . This light, speedy, gritty, player could "smear" his share of plays.
It was his first try at football, but what a try!
Guards: HIX . . . A lot was expected from Hix, who did a sweet job of the
punting. A real player, hot on defense, and a sure tackler.
CURTIS . . . Big and hefty, he won a, place his first year out. He got a lot of
experience which will show up even better next year.
HOFMANN . . . "Huffie" was big, hard to move. As the Hi-Y Review said,
"permanent as the rock of Gibraltar". His last year.
Centers: FLESHER . . . "Don" grew up on footballs and signals. This was
his fourth letter in this sport. His favorite was smearing regular formation plays.
FESSENDEN . . . "Broncho" played some great games during his first year as
a regular. He also starred at tackle. He always held up his part of the line in
Backs: ABELL . . . A speed to Burng reverse turn to kiLLg hard as iron: and
deceiving change of pace spells Abell. Possessed of snaky hips, he was able to
Wriggle through for the needed yardage. Playing at quarter he was truly our
Qgiallopin' Ghost". For two years he has starred for M. V. H. S.-and only a junior.
DeFUR . . . The battering ram-hit
the line like a ton of bricks, few of the op-
ponents could stop himg nor did they like
to be tackled by him.
ROBB . . . A small man, but a real
one. His fine blocking and tackling won
him recognition . . . dependable.
B. OLIVER . . . The black-headed res-
taurant man was a real back. His passing
and end running would be an asset to any
team. . . "Rufus"
FLOYD . . . They all looked alike to
"Fisherman Dick". Little or big, fast or
slow, he brought them down with a bang!

ASHWORTH, Capt .... "Seph" played
either guard well. This was his second year
as captain and his third letter. Flor the first
time Capt. Ashworth became an important
cog in the offense--notcontenting himself
with breaking up opponent's plays. He will
be sorely missed next year, making it hard
AUD . . . the leading scorer. Herschel al-
ways played hard and was excellent in his
floor Work. When it came to a tight place,
"Audie" always came through . . . his iight-
ing spirit contagious.
LEFFEIL . . . the elongated one. Tall, the
conventional center. But that was not all.
He could hit the basket and back up the shots
of team-mates. This was his last year.
KNOOP . . . "Fritzy" did not iind him-
self until the season was well under way, but
when he did, "it rained field goals". His
elusive, cool-headed style of play will not soon
ABELL . . . an abundance of speed, a
keen eye, a good disposition--but lots of
fight-all qualities which made "Abe" a real forward.
SCHAFER . . . "Squirt" could handle the ball . . . so he played fioor guard.
He could always be depended upon to give all he had, and that with his basket
eye, is it any wonder that he starred?
FESSENDEN . "Broncho" could play either guard and was a sub that
could take a regu1ar's place without hindering play. For smoothness in team play,
he was hard to duplicate . . . and a good shot.
BISHOP . . . "Bishv" was a fast little forward who was a Iirst stringer un-
til Abell got "hot", His floor work always iitted in well, and he rarely missed
when he shot.
EILERT . . . Every team must have its subs, and that is the reason Casper
was such a favorite in the Vernon camp. . . a good shot!

WILLIAMS . . . "Katink" was one of the best captains M. V. H. S. has had.
Faithful, reliable, a devotee of the game. One will not soon forget the way "Ka-
tink" came through in the pinches . . . a good captain!
KING . . . commonly called "Lunie". She has certainly been one of the best
guards M. V. H. S. has ever produced. NVhen others thought the game lost and
gave up, "Lunie" fought on and played a hard game to the very end.
HOCKMAN . . . "Le" through it all always wore a smile that oftimes cheered
her mates on. As "Le" leaves the castle, the entire school will say farewell to a.
truly hard fighting forward.
AUD . . . There are no words which express the fine way Leota plays quite
so well as those of her opponent in a game this year, namely: "She certainly is ai
hard fighting, good-natured guard".
ESCHE . . . "Minnie" has been on the squad since her freshman year. And
in this her senior year she is playing her best. She would not let a pass slip by
her and was always on the alert.
HOVEY . . . "Jakie" has always tried to do her bit for M. V. H. S. although
she knew that she was not physically able. She had a dead eye on the basket and
while she did play, it meant victory.
SCHNEIDER . . . Doris, the tall guard, is to be given the handshake for the
fine way she has been faithful to the team, always ready to go in and fight . . .
and how she could iight!
WHIPPLE . . . Ella is also to be complimented for her sticking to the team,
knowing she would not get to play much, but when she did, she fought hard and
KECK . . . "Bev" did not get to play until late in the season and for a. While
she was bothered by inexperience, but she soon overcame that, and more than
once she brought joy to the fans by her playing.
DIETERLE . . . little "Butch" in. the times that she got to play showed
that she knew the game and will be a star for M. V. H. S. soon!

LAND SAKES! N0
One of the best of many good golf stories told by Cyril Tolley concerns two
players who sliced their drivers into the rough, and went in search of the balls.
They searched for a long time without success. A dear old lady watched them with
At last, after the search had proceeded half an hour, she beckoned to them
and said sweetly: "I hope I'm not interrupting gentlemeng but would it be cheat-
ing lf I,told you where they were?"
THE BOY WAS CORRECT
A teacher in a local school was explaining sentence construction to her pupils.
The topic went like this:
"A predicate is an absolute necessity in a sentence, to make it complete. No
sentence can be given without a predicate."
An unusually bright boy argued the point with her, claiming such a thing
"Very well, then," said the teacher, "give me a sentence without a predicate."
"Thirty days," was the reply.
She tafter the gamejz "I think they were horrible not to cheer the fellow
with the white pantsg he carried the ball more tl1a.n anyone else."

I YOUR RELATIVES AND FRIENDS AT THIS HAPPY
stand at the threshold of your destiny and with hopeful, yearning
hearts wish for you the fullest measure of success and happiness. In
this wish The Old First National Bank heartily joins and bespeaks its
fullest co-operation and assistance in all your laudable ambitions. You
have dreams of a future that will measure up to the cherished expecta-
tions of your friends and reflect the honor you now anticipate. In your
planning determine what you can do best and enjoy most and special-
ize in that line. The day for the "jack of all trades" is past. Having
decided on your line of work, have the energy to carry it forward. Your
success in life will depend upon YOU--not on luck or some freak of
fortune. Millions have put into successful effect dreams born of early
fortune. Millions have fallen short of the mark because they lack the
energy to put into successful effect dreams born of early hopes. And
in your places may we not earnestly suggest that you incorporate a
determination to put a part of your earnings in the bank and keep it
there, no matter what the temptation to spend it foolishly, so when
opportunity comes to make your dream come true you will have the
money to make it a reality you have hoped for.

AFTER HIGH SCHOOL-WHAT? E
In every high school senior class there are a few folks who are r
adapted to the greatest of all professions-BUSINESS. For such folks, ,
there are wonderful opportunities in the business world. A few 'months
of intensive study in a good business school enables these folks to enter
the business oftice at a very satisfactory beginning salary and puts them
in line for opportunities far above the average.

iHomes of Character and Distinction
There is a look of character and distinction in a beautiful Face Brick
house that makes an impressive appeal to most home lovers. It ex-
i presses permanence as well as charm. And what surprises many home-
2 builders who investigate Face Brick, is that the savings that come with
I this permanance-slow depreciation, high resale value, freedom from
repairs, a minimum of painting, and lower heating costs and insurance
Q rates-makes the Face Brick house, in the long run, themost econom-
! ical to own. The facts are fully presented in "The Story of Brick."
